Special announcement...

The SIS2020 meeting should has coincided with the the 75th birthday of Kash Mittal. Thus, on this momentous occasion, during SIS2022 symposium we feel it is very appropriate to bring out a book and dedicate to him for his singular contribution to the field of surfactants. As you all know that Kash initiated this biennial series of SIS meetings in 1976 and these have been running un-interruptedly for last more than 40 years which is marvellous. SIS meetings are veritably international in spirit and scope and have been held in various parts of the globe. This spectacular success is all due to Kash's dedication and excellent relation with the surfactants community worldwide. Today, SIS meetings are regarded the premium forum for researchers actively engaged in the arena of surfactants.
In this book, only the Plenary and Invited Speakers will be invited to contribute to this book. Prof. Polina Prokopovich (Cardiff University, UK) has already agreed to spearhead this book project and CRC Press has shown keen interest in publishing this book. Prof. Prokopovich with the help of Prof. Krister Holmberg (Sweden) will bring this book to fruition. Further details about this book will be provided in due course. We strongly feel that this book will be an appropriate tribute to Kash for all what he has done.
